Skincare - Body - Weleda - Sea Buckthorn Body Oil

Jun/04/2016

WHAT IS THIS MAGIC IN A BOTTLE?! I bought the Weleda starter kit with 6 essential oils and am always hesitant to put a new oil on my face just because my skin is so sensitive. I was using Seabuck Wonders' pure Organic Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil on my face before this, so I figured the sea buckthorn in the starter kit was probably least likely to aggravate anything. Not only did it …Read more

Top/Base Coats - essence - The Gel Nail Polish Top Coat

Dec/06/2015

Hands down better than all of the more expensive brands even without use of the base coat! Ulta was all out of the base coat when I bought this, but with how long this top coat lasts just by itself, I can't wait to see how well it works with the base. I'm very hard on my hands, and I can't recommend this enough! It really does look like gel and lasts longer than anything else …Read more

Lipstick - RIMMEL - London Lasting Finish Lip By Kate Matte Collection - 104

Great matte lipstick without being drying at all! I love dabbing this color on my lips (more than swiping it) to define my lips when they've partially disappeared (from foundation and concealer) and make them look like they're naturally flushed and full all the time without any effort. Especially when I don't want to bother with having a darker lipstick and worrying whether it …Read more

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles in Brightener

Oct/09/2015

This is by far, my absolute favorite under-eye concealer and 10 hours of sleep in a bottle!! I don't understand the negative reviews on here at all. This stuff makes me feel like I can wear less makeup everywhere else on my face because people's eyes will be so drawn to my radiant under-eyes! Before having the brightening version, I first had it in the fair/light and also love it for …Read more

Jul/25/2015

MAJOR PROPS to Cover Girl for making this foundation!! I was sitting at lunch with three of my girlfriends, and they all asked what foundation I was wearing saying my skin looked so good...They were beyond shocked when I told them it was this foundation. One of my friends went, "Are you freaking serious?! You're kidding right?!?" Then she started saying how my skin had really …Read more

This lipliner in "06 Satin Mauve" is the HG liner that I use all over my lips on days I want something between a nude and a bold lip. Absolutely love it! The formula is like a high end liner, but these are 2 DOLLARS! It doesn't dry my lips out and is very long lasting. I exfoliate my lips, apply some balm, cover them with my foundation, and then go to town with this sucker. Some of …Read more

This highlighter is gorgeous and long-lasting for fair-medium skin tones with an absolutely perfect name for what it does. It looks like you're holding a candle up to your face with the warm golden glow dancing on your cheekbones lol The girl who was helping me was wearing it and the way her highlight still looked beautiful after she had been wearing it all day convinced to get it over the …Read more

Jul/10/2015

Ugghhh :'( I was SO excited to try this because of all the rave reviews and hype. I was convinced this could be the one to take the 5 year coveted spot of my all time favorite, high end/low end mascara that gets compliments on the regular (Maybelline Mega Plus Volum' Express - the one in the teal tube with pink lettering). I was super disappointed to find that it was ALL hype. The hard …Read more

Great for a "no makeup" makeup look as long as you don't have many dry patches ie. for going to the gym, beach, camping, etc. Recommend exfoliating immediately prior to applying your moisturizer and this foundation to help eliminate any dry patches as it will accentuate these areas. Goes on best with fingers, quickly and seamlessly blending in to look like a better version of your …Read more

I really like these, I just wish my lips didn't end up so dry after a full day of wear. Maison is my favorite (a brownish color that's constantly out in all of the displays - I kept my eye out for it at two Ulta's forever until I found it), and I get compliments whenever I wear it. Butter is my favorite matte nude. Alabama is a good "brickish" red, and Sweet Pink is fun …Read more
